resolutions check in.

most people let their resolutions go by january 15th. not me! let's see if i can remember to check in quarterly. my comments this time around are in lighter green.

intellectual
read 5 classic books. i bought 6 in october, i'm giving myself room to be like "forget that." to one of them.
i got through most of Aesop's Fables on the plane to and from Atlanta. .75/5

spiritual
start a topical scripture binder. ala this.
5% i have a binder.


beauty
be more polished and girly. i would probably define myself as quite rough around the edges with this one as that i am still yet to make it to work with makeup on in 2012. (side note, i have added owning a pair of Christian Louboutin heels to my 5 year goal list.)
20%, i wear makeup occasionally, but overall, i am picking daily outfits with a little more thought.

creative
i will be joining Hollyanne & Kevin in their 52 photographs challenge. as i looked through my pictures from last year, i see a photographic voice emerging; i want to foster it by more consistently spending time with my camera.
0% this probably won't change.


i hope to complete 2 paintings this year. i have a couple ideas that have been stewing.  and usually my ideas that stew for months end up selling.
0% progress. things are still stewing.

i want to shoot a friend with their pet(s) once a month. i think i will be able to catch 2 this month. (fingers crossed) i need to build a portfolio. so if you're reading this, you're my friend (who has a pet) and live in the denver area (or can make some time when i'm back in NE) contact me. i'm open to most pets, preferably no spiders or snakes though (if it is one of those it will be just the pet, not you interacting with it because i'm not sure i could stand it)
2/3, nichelle & marissa stepped up, i need more friends with pets. haha some might argue that i need more friends in general, but that's for another day.

health
oh boy, here comes the cliche. i want to find myself back in the healthy weight bracket by summer. i wont give numbers, but i actually already started working on this in early december. my "workout motivation." Pinterest board has kind of blown up. here's a curveball though, i will be discontinuing my gym membership this month. (woohoo $26/month for something i'll actually use)
25%, since my friend's wedding, i have lost a bald eagle. i still go to the gym though, i started going when j was preparing for basic training. it has been kind of spotty, as that my life has kinda imploded this quarter, but whatever.
